Welcome to the annual reunion of the Oakwood College Family! 

In spite of Reaganomics and national recession and retrenchment, Oakwood has 
continued, by the grace of Cod, its steady climb to national and international 
acclaim. 

Not the least of our blessings are: 

1. the 1,396 students (265 from overseas) who came here in September 

2. the thousands of you who have come to celebrate our special weekend and 

3. the scores of thousands back home who aresupporting our cause with their 
prayers and gifts. 

All Of these factors testify clearly that it is possible for institutions as well as 
persons "to grow in stature" and "to increase in favor with cod and man " 



You are a part of our corporate success-welcome Home! 



C B Rock

TO THEE OUR DEAR OAKWOOD 



CHORUS 

To thee our dear Oakwood 
To thee we shall ever sing 
For decades thou has stood 
Thy name shall ever ring. 
Here we spend our happy days. 
And we love to sing thy praise. 
And where-ever we may be, 
We Will always be true to thee, 
Our worthy old, old, O.C. 



Our dear Oakwood within whose vale 

Thy standards will not fail, 

Our hearts are filled with wondrous cheer 

When thoughts of thee draw near. 

We love thy pines, thy elms, thy oaks 

And campus always green. 

Thy many flowers and distant mounts. 

Form one impressive scene. 

2. 

From states afar and isies of sea 

Thy students come to thee. 

And fain do linger in thy halls 

Enlightened truthfully. 

From nature's scenes they ever learn. 

And study from thy soil. 

Till many more thy works discern, 

We'll pray for thee and toil. 

3. 

As happy birds come in the spring 
And sing not for their pay. 
Rich, natural melodies they bring 
Cheering throughout the day. 
We too will serve thee faithfully 
n all we do and say. 
We hope in God, we trust in thee 
True and loyal we'll be. 

—0. B. Edwards
